Osaka was a little trickier for me. There was less English signage and there are seven train companies that run all over the city. It was tough to figure out the correct route and buy the corresponding ticket. It was also super hot and humid during the day. Walking around in the early morning or at night was better. Overall Japan was amazing.
Our hotel in Osaka offered natural hot spring water in our shower.
I loved all the school kids every morning.
